“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of the infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”

Exam 1 scores are in for all but 2 people (which I should have graded by tomorrow at noon). I have entered the raw data on Blackboard, as well as an estimate of how I would curve the first exam, if the first exam needed a curve. You will need to pick up the exam from me, personally. I will not be filtering it through your TAs. I will be in my office for office hours as usual on Thursday. You may also stop by Monday or Wednesday between 10:00-10:30 AM. A few things:
For some (many?) of you, algebra remains a complete and total mystery. This is unacceptable in calculus 3. At one point, I was literally open-mouthed in shock at what students were writing. If you see the note "please retake algebra", that's a clue that you have a LOT of work to do in that regard. To motivate you, I will have it so that all solutions must be simplified in one way or another on the next exam.
Problem 1 was an absolute bloodbath. I would guess that half the class didn't know what was meant by "skew lines" (a large number of students thought that this meant that the pair of lines were neither parallel nor perpendicular). A more fundamental problem, however, is the confusion between a line, and a vector in the direction of the line. That will kill you later.
Problem 2 was the best problem on the exam. It was also the easiest, of course, but students performed pretty admirably on it.
Problem 3 was a confused mess, mostly because many students didn't bother either to learn the formula(e) for curvature, or to enter it into their calculator. Really, there's no excuse for that. It was also a putrid display of algebraic skills for many.
Problem 4 was OK, but seemed to be harder for students the more they knew about planes (I know how weird that sounds).
But let's get to brass tacks here. If you made what I would have considered an F on this exam, you should seriously consider dropping the course. The exams will be much harder from here on, and there are no dropped exams this semester.
